Why Hydrogen?

Why Hydrogen?
In this freshman and transfer student seminar, we examine the motivations for exploring hydrogen and other alternative energy sources. We will study the mechanics of hydrogen generation, its storage, its detection, issues related to safety, and its use in fuel cells and internal combustion engines. Where are the bottlenecks on the road to a hydrogen economy, in terms of the fundamental science, and what are our prospects for solving these problems?
